Ferry Building, Auckland
(4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Step back into New Zealand's maritime heritage at Ferry Building, an important and ornate structure built by the Auckland Harbor Board between 1909 and 1912. Registered with the Historic Places Trust, the building's grandeur highlights the wealth and power generated by the nation's ports at the turn of the 20th century. Its unusual coloration and design make it stand out against the backdrop of modern-day Auckland. Explore the history of the wharf while watching the boats come in and out of the harbor, and then grab a bite to eat in one of the cafes and restaurants now housed here.
